VERONIKA DECIDES TO DIE Movie Trailer with Sarah Michelle Gellar
The trailer for the movie adaptation of Paulo Coelho’s book VERONIKA DECIDES TO DIE starring Sarah Michelle Gellar has just been released.
I read the book years ago (I think more than 10 years ago) and LOVED it. I’m not sure how well this will be translated into a movie, but I am definitely excited to find out.
If you haven’t read the book, I definitely recommend your grab yourself a copy of Veronika Decides to Die before watching the movie (although of course if you would rather not get spoiled before watching the movie, then you shouldn’t read the book).
Veronika Decides to Die will be released in March 2009. Let me know what you think of the trailer.
Synopsis: The story centers on Veronika, a woman in her mid twenties who appears to have everything: good looks, good job and a great life ahead of her. Yet she decides to end her own life. She is unsuccessful and awakens in a mental hospital where she learns that she has five days to live. We learn that the reason that she attempted suicide was that she felt so constrained by the rules and expectations of ‘normal’ society that she had concluded that she had experienced all that life had to offer. However in the hospital she meets people who are only ‘insane’ because they don’t always follow society’s rules. With little left to lose, Veronika embarks on a journey on which she frees herself to experience relationships and emotions and ultimately discovers what it means to live.
